Chaise Longue / September 14, 2018 / Eleanor Becker
The frame for an outdoor chaise lounge can be made from a wide range of furniture building materials. The only condition is that it must be somewhat weather-resistant. Wood that has been treated and varnished will usually last a long time with the right amount of upkeep, as will metal. For elegance and traditional design, a wrought iron frame is beautiful but also arguably heavy. An aluminum frame does not connote the same elegance, but is much lighter and looks more modern. Both are subject to rusting after enough time.
Originally, the frames for the very first chaise lounge chairs used in drawing rooms was made from wood. Variations on the indoor chairs also brought about a mobile chaise lounge made from metal used by the French army. This seat was portable and could be folded and unfolded. Today, most indoor chaise lounge frames are still made from wood, some of which is ornately carved. While there also exist chaise loungers with metal frames, they are not nearly as portable or foldable as were their predecessors. For indoor use, it is assumed that the chair will not be moved around very often, so weight and ease of movement are not of chief priority.
